Lesson Unit: Ms. Marvel, Our Identities, Our Superpowers

This unit is heavily focused on the idea of identity, particularly how culture influences identity and how our identity shapes individual's strengths - their 'super powers'. Students will read G. Willow Wilson's 'Ms. Marvel: No Normal'; engage in guided reading questions and discussions with their peers; and complete a project in which they depict themselves as superheroes based on aspects of their identity. This unit is designed for middle and high school students and can be implemented in about three to four weeks.
